Merry Pranksters wine is lovingly hand-grown, hand-made and mischievously bottled by the La Honda Winery team. As the label says, the wines are a fun and tasty tribute to the Merry Pranksters and their home in the hills above San Francisco Bay where we grow the grapes.

Our first release will be a 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon in summer 2021. Charlie says “Showcasing the best mountain grapes, a fabulously fruity wine with light tannins. Picked in the early morning fog, fermentation started spontaneously in open-top tanks. 6 months in oak and 1 month in stainless steel. Bottled unfined & unfiltered. Strawberry and black cherry aromas, blackcurrant and blueberry flavors. Deliciously perfect for pranks.”
